At the beginning of the 19th century, when it was common for European
countries to assert hospitableness as a defining national characteristic,
their proclamations were often accompanied by a violent countervailing
impulse. This panel will trace the dynamic of welcome and rejection over
the course of the century and across a series of thresholds (personal,
domestic, and international). Exploring the nexus where possession,
self-possession, and obligation confront each other, we will ask how and to
what extent the discourse of hospitality speaks to us with renewed force in
the twenty-first century.

If, as philosopher and poet Paul Valéry says, “The prophet is in the same
boat as the historian,” then why does the future often remain alienated
from the past and present? Why do we envision the future as either utopic
or dystopic? Why are discussions of the future frequently limited to the
realm of science fiction? As the first decade of the new millennium draws
to a close, the fourth annual Battleground States Conference looks towards
the future. The conference seeks to address the future from cultural,
ideological, political, and technological perspectives as well as reflect
on contested visions of the future.
